Visa Balance Transfer
A Visa Balance Transfer is used to pay off another high interest credit card with funds from a Members 1st credit card, typically at a promotional rate.
Only our Visa Platinum Rewards, Visa Platinum Low Rate and Visa Signature (Points and Cash Back) are eligible for promotional rates. Our Platinum Secured and Platinum Business products are not eligible for promotional balance transfers.
Balance transfers are only used to pay off other existing high-interest credit cards. They cannot be used to place funds into a checking or savings account.
If you need to get cash from your Members 1st credit card, you can do so by performing a cash advance. This can be done at any branch location. You will need to have your Members 1st credit card and your driver’s license. This advance will post to your card at your regular interest rate.
Don’t have a branch near you or know your credit card PIN? Call our Customer Service team at (800) 283-2328 to perform a cash advance over the phone. You will need to have your Members 1st credit card and your driver’s license available. This advance will post to your card at your regular interest rate.
